Joe Tom Armbrester Agricultural Center
Imagine the joy a blind girl experiences when touching a baby chick for the first time. Or
the sense of pride a DeafBlind teen feels when planting a tree unassisted. Thanks to an
anonymous $1 million donation, AIDB’s new Agricultural Center will provide hands-on,
sensory-rich experiences like these to help our students learn and thrive.

Good health is critical to success in the classroom. But in a facility originally built in 1938,
providing state-of- the-art care proved difficult. Thanks to the Foundation, our new Nursing
Center, complete with three hospital bedrooms, a nursing station, a waiting area and
administrative space, will provide the most comprehensive on-campus health care ever
available to our students.
